We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Guy Gardner: Emerald Fallout.|
|Alternate Title:||Green Lantern: Emerald Fallout.|
|Collecting 4 Issues:||Guy Gardner: Warrior #18-21.|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
Just a couple months after Hal Jordan became Parallax, and the Emerald Twilight storyline drew to a close, Emerald Fallout passed quietly through the pages of Guy Gardner: Warrior. With all the hype DC had built with Green Lantern just then - especially with 'Twilight being the catalyst for Zero Hour - I never understood why they didn't try to roll some of that hype over to Guy Gardner, and collect this storyline into a trade. Despite the protests of H.E.A.T., Hal as a villain was hot at the time, and this story ends with Guy fighting Hal - how could they not collect this into TPB? But <sigh> they didn't. I'd still like to see it though, because it connects to Emerald Twilight, and it's the end of Guy Gardner with Sinestro's power ring.
It's been so long since this series was released, and Guy is well enough known as a Green Lantern, this TPB might just as well be titled Green Lantern: Emerald Fallout. It might be better served sales wise, as well. Also, it would go better with all the "GL: Emerald..." titles that have already been published in TPB form. For the cover, I didn't even have to think about it - #21, with the armored Guy fighting Hal as Parallax.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
